Jean Stone Scholarship
The Jean Stone Scholarship is in memory of the Stone Family’s beloved wife, mother and grandmother, Jean Stone, who was a nurse, caring for others throughout her career. The scholarship of up to $500 is intended to support volunteers working in palliative care by helping to broaden their knowledge. A minimum of two scholarships are awarded each year. Funds must be put towards the cost of a conference or course
on palliative care.
We will be accepting applications for the 2018 Jean Stone Scholarship in January 2018.
Dr. Donna Wilson Caregiver Award
We all know this person: the daughter who stops in to check on her palliative ill dad every day with a meal in hand and stays until he is tucked into bed, the nephew who takes the time to make sure his sick Grandma’s Christmas lights get put up and taken down, and her summer flowers get planted, the neighbour who is always available to drive your mom to her palliative chemotherapy appointments because you live on the other side of the province.
AHPCA is very honoured to announce the Dr. Donna Wilson Caregiver Award, recognizing these unpaid, informal palliative caregivers. Take a moment and nominate that person who always goes the extra mile.
Register now for our 2017 Roadshow!
“This Thing Called Grief – It’s Complicated” is a hands-on full-day workshop that will help you cope with grief and bereavement in more complex situations, such as medical aid in dying, suicide, sudden death, and the loss of a teen or young adult. Caregivers, family members, community volunteers, and healthcare professionals are all welcome.
